The Lombard Public Works Department is pleased to announce its 5th annual Public Works Citizens Academy, which will provide residents with an opportunity to learn more about the operations and services provided by the department. Residents interested in the program are invited to sign up on the Village website, as class size is limited.
The free academy is open to residents 18 and older and offers hands-on training activities, tours of Village facilities, and presentations by Public Works staff. Lombard’s PWCA will be held on Monday evenings, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., April 17 through May 8, with a graduation event scheduled on Thursday, May 18, in conjunction with a regularly scheduled Village Board of Trustees Meeting.
Throughout the academy, participants will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities, tours and demonstrations to better understand the day-to-day work of the department. Topics covered will include streets, electrical and forestry as well as underground utilities. Participants will also tour the Glenbard Wastewater Authority.
“The Public Works Citizens Academy is a great way for residents to learn about the critical role Public Works plays in enhancing the quality of life of our residents,” said Public Works Director Carl Goldsmith. “We’re excited to share this information with another group of residents and encourage everyone to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
